It's muffin tin monday again! After a few weeks, my daughter is started to look forward to Muffin Tin Meals. We took last week off from our color themes to do a birthday muffin tin meal for her, so doing Green this week lined up with St. Patrick's Day! I have a mini shamrock cookie cutter, so I used that to make some fun shapes for our green/St. Patrick's Day muffin tin meal.
I bought these mini shaped cookie cutters in India, but there are similar mini cookie cutters available at amazon.com. I used the shamrock shape on a green apple, some toast, and a green bell pepper. I didn't end up serving the green orange (it's called a mosambi) shown here, because it wasn't very good.
So, for our Green Shamrock muffin tin meal, I served:
- shamrock-shaped green apple pieces
- gold-wrapped candy, like we've been using in our Leprechaun hunts
- shamrock-shaped green bell pepper
- spreadable cheese to dip the veggies in
- shamrock-shaped toast
After lunch, we continued our St. Patrick's Day theme and used the rest of the bell pepper to make green pepper shamrock paintings.

Love it! I saw another recipe lately, using green peppers as shamrocks. My kid won’t eat them, and I hate peppers of all sorts. But it looks cute and perfect for St. Patty’s day, just like your MTM!
